Moving Mountains for Utah Women.
The mission of the Utah Women & Leadership Project is to strengthen the impact of Utah girls and women. We serve Utah and its residents by 1) producing relevant, trustworthy, and applicable research; 2) creating and gathering valuable resources; and 3) convening trainings and events that inform, inspire, and ignite growth and change for all Utahns.
The UWLP hosts, offers, partners, and collaborates on programs, seminars, lectures, workshops, and think tanks aligned with efforts to move mountains for Utah girls and women. View all upcoming events.
Rising Athenas, Male Allies, and the Power of Gender PartnershipThe authors of the Harvard Business Review books Athena Rising and Good Guys make the business case for male engagement in gender equality. Using their research and organizational best practices, they provide the “how to” for men, women, and organizational leaders who want to be intentional, inclusive, and excellent allies, leveraging mentorship, sponsorship, and workplace partnership to create a more diverse workforce.
The UWLP started offering and co-hosting gatherings and events in 2014 and began capturing the “Utah Women’s Leadership Speaker & Dialogue Series” on video in 2015. We keep the past event information online as a resource for those looking for topics and speakers for future events. Our recent event videos are now posted online.
The community calendar lists all events in the state of Utah focused on girls and women, whether the event is for them specifically or if it is designed for influencers about how to better support and advance girls and women. To obtain this information, student interns or assistants visit all of the websites of the women’s networks, groups, and associations across the state of Utah each month. If you have an event that you would like listed, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
